McGuinty, Stelmach flop opinion poll

By QMI Agency

Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Danny Williams is the highest-rated provincial head of government in Canada, according to an Angus-Reid poll released Thursday.

The charismatic, and always controversial, premier remains a hit with is province, with more than three in four respondents (78%) approving of Williams' performance.

That's a far cry from the two premiers at the bottom of the online survey Ontario's Dalton McGuinty scored 18% and Alberta's Ed Stelmach scored 14%.

The poll sampled 7,000 Canadians in nine provinces.

Both McGuinty and Stelmach slipped considerably since the last poll results from August.

At that time, 23% of respondents approved of McGuinty's performance, and 25% approved of Stelmach.

Saskatchewan's Brad Wall made second on the list of popular premiers with 58% approval, but even he slipped from the 60% he enjoyed in August.

Nova Scotia's Darrell Dexter -- who took office in June -- was next with 43%.

The approval rating for Manitoba's Greg Selinger was 29%, but half of respondents in his province are undecided about the way he has performed.

Selinger took over from Gary Doer in October.

Quebec Premier Jean Charest received a positive review from only 25% of respondents, while the proportion is slightly lower for British Columbia Premier Gordon Campbell (21%) and New Brunswick Premier Shawn Graham (20%).


its interesting mcguinty's personal numbers are worse than the ontario liberals numbers , you have to think his days might be soon numbered as leader .

Premier's tend to be less popular during times of economic hardship.

If the opposition truly wants to capitalize they need to make the economy their issue, and do so now.
